The Preparation by Purging

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

John the Baptist gave notice of the purging which was about to happen:

Matthew 3:10 And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

12 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

Trees generally refer to men in Scripture and if you are not bearing good fruit then you are subject to judgment.  Doing nothing produces no fruit thus we should be seeking FATHER’S specific will for us so that we bear fruit in the area of our gifts and calling.  Some men are called to become businessmen to fund the Gospel.  Sadly, most keep their proceeds for their own use and restrict the Gospel from freely flowing.  Fortunately FATHER intervenes and brings forth resources from other means and sources.  Some men naturally have favor among others but they use their gift to consume resources on their own lusts and they end up owing everybody in town.  They are called to connect the body of Christ but bear no fruit.  The lost opportunities list goes on.

FATHER is not unaware of those who are not producing fruit and will remove their unproductiveness even if it means their total removal.  Some will only require minor pruning but others will be subjected to extremes.  I believe we have been in a pruning stage in recent times and each of us should embrace the removal of anything unproductive in our lives.

What percentage of the time would you like to be led by THE SPIRIT?  20%, 50%, 80% or 100%?  Your soul has some good ideas but HIS SPIRIT has the best and appropriate ideas.  How would you like to have every action be 100% correct?  Many believe that is impossible yet Jesus our Elder Brother walked in 100% obedience to FATHER.

In John chapter 15, the beloved disciple wrote the words Jesus Himself spoke:

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”

Are you interested in glorifying FATHER or yourself?  Are your resources available for FATHER or reserved for your soul’s use?  These are tough questions and you can disregard them in the privacy of your home without anyone looking you in the eye.  However the HOLY SPIRIT knows your heart and you have no place to hide but you must confront your own intent and see if it truly aligns with FATHER’S Divine Intent.  In the above passage, Jesus makes it perfectly clear what happens to those who don’t abide in Him.

“FATHER, prune, purge, and remove anything inside of me that hinders me from abiding fully in YOUR Perfect Plan, Will, and Purpose!”

So be it.

Thank You!

We very much appreciate your continued support both in the form of prayers and finances.  I make it a point to read each and every letter that arrives in our PO Box.  Your donations help us spread the Gospel as well as minister Love and reconciliation wherever FATHER sends us.

And to lighten up the day a little:

I had an encounter of a different kind this last weekend:


Don’t be moved by the adversary no matter what form he takes.

Being Fully Led By THE SPIRIT

Monday, December 21st, 2015

There is no question that your mind can supply you with some good ideas but the problem is that your mind is restricted to the time continuum.  It cannot know what lies ahead.  As Paul wrote in Romans:

8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

This is such a simple sentence with such a great and powerful message.  When we are led by FATHER’S Spirit, we take on HIS Divine Intent of Love and HIS Plan for mankind.  We set aside any past priorities and at some point they become irrelevant in our lives.  You have compassion for people who were once your enemies and you now understand their plight.  FATHER places you in situations that need HIS intervention and you function as a vessel of honor on HIS behalf.

Paul writes in verse 21 “creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption” and the Sons are the first to shed this corruption as they walk and are fully led by HIS SPIRIT.  They are indeed the firstfruits sown in a world full of darkness and their light will shine brightly in the immense darkness of this hour.  Creation does groan for this time at hand and FATHER is not unwilling but has been patiently maturing HIS Sons to shine forth as the noonday.  Their arrival on the scene turns chaos into peace.

Great faith is required to make the transition from a would be Son to a mature, functioning Son.  That last little bit of the soul and flesh must be dealt with and abandoned as we move forth in THE SPIRIT.  The transition is uncharted territory and we must not let fear rise up just before we take that fateful step into HIS realm.

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

FATHER’S SPIRIT compensates for our weaknesses and we are no longer hindered by how to pray for HIS SPIRIT takes front and center in the process of intercession.  We need not rely or trust in our mind’s ability to pray, predict, project or any other process for FATHER’S perfect Will and plan will flow to us and through us to the benefit and blessing of all mankind.

It is not business as usual.  What has worked in the past will not work in the future.  “This is the way we have always done it” will be replaced by “FATHER, according to YOUR Will, we will move forth.”  The world is coming to a point where it has exhausted its mental prowess to guide it through circumstances.  Men just do not know what they are doing and where they are taking those who follow them.  They are the blind leading the blind and they are headed for the ditch and it is only a matter of time before they fall in.

On the other hand consider what FATHER says about the Sons:

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

When we lay aside every weight that would easily beset us, we will then truly know that all things are working together for we are walking out HIS Purpose.  The fact that you are reading these words would indicate your focus on being one of the Called Out Ones.  It is not by chance but by HIS Purpose that you are drawn to HIS SPIRIT in the time of preparation.

There will soon come a point where you must exercise great faith and trust IN HIM.  You must leave the boat and step out, keeping your eyes on HIM.  HE will instruct you when to step out for HE is not interested in failure but full and complete success.  That day will come when you are fully led by THE SPIRIT.

Spiritual Activity Increasing

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Two things happened this weekend causing me to write about them.  First, yesterday morning a little after 4 AM I was awaken by both of my calf muscles cramping requiring to jump out of bed to relieve the pain.  This has only happened one other time to me and it occurred in August of 1996 just before I was to depart the church.

On the Sunday of the Feast of Pentecost, May 1996, Martin Paulat called me and told me of a vision he had that weekend.  The vision FATHER gave him had me on a specific path.  He would ask, “Is Bob on the right path?” and FATHER said “Yes.”  Three arrows were shot at me while on this path and they were shot by “the pentecostal church”.  On the particular Sunday morning I had the dual calf muscle cramps we had a guest speaker at our church- a church prophet.  That Sunday evening he spoke on the book of Malachi.  I had been studying that particular book just prior to that weekend.

In chapter 3, FATHER told me that the following verses were referring to the current leadership in the Pentecostal church  when HE was spoke the following:

13 ​​“Your words have been harsh against Me,” ​​Says the LORD, ​​“Yet you say, ​‘​What have we spoken against You?’

14 ​​You have said, ​‘​It is useless to serve God; ​​What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance, ​​And that we have walked as mourners ​​Before the LORD of hosts?

15 ​​So now we call the proud blessed, ​​For those who do wickedness are raised up; ​​They even tempt God and go free.’ ”

Then we have the Remnant mentioned:

16 ​​Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, ​​And the LORD listened and heard them; ​​So a book of remembrance was written before Him ​​For those who fear the LORD ​​And who meditate on His name.

​17 ​​“They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, ​​“On the day that I make them My jewels. ​​And I will spare them ​​As a man spares his own son who serves him.”

18 ​​Then you shall again discern ​​Between the righteous and the wicked, ​​Between one who serves God ​​And one who does not serve Him.

In Malachi 4 speaks of the Great Day of THE LORD and in verse 2, the calves are mentioned:

NRSV 4:2 But for you who revere my name the sun of righteousness shall rise, with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall.

My calves caused me to leap out of bed that morning.

Chapter 3 just happened to be what the prophet spoke on that evening.  When he covered verses 16 through 18, he proclaimed those verses to represent the church but I knew different.  Three times he had the congregation agree with him when he asked the question “Who does this (16-18) refer to?’.  In unison the congregation would loudly proclaim “the church” but I was silent.  I was told that night not to challenge Saul’s anointing.

This latest episode of leaping out of bed due to my two calves is the 2nd witness to me that the Great Day of THE LORD is at hand.

At little after 4 AM this morning I was awakened from a dream where a man said “This will become known as the darkest day in history.”  I fell back asleep and awoke again with that statement in front of me.  A third time I awoke and it was still there.  As of this writing I am not aware of anything happening today and do not know if this refers to this day or some day in the near future.  I was led to write of these events to alert you so that you are not caught unaware.

In 1996, there were three arrows shot at me by the church.  The church prophet shot the 2nd arrow and two weeks later the pastor shot the last arrow and FATHER had me depart on August 31st of that year.  A few weeks later I attended my first Feast of Tabernacles in Minneapolis and was asked to speak.  I spoke on the Book of Esther.

Clearly today I will be keeping my eyes and ears open.  What is happening may be only in the Spiritual, it may be in the physical behind closed doors, or it may simply be coming soon.  Only FATHER knows.

We are authorized to heal

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

Love gives and one aspect of giving is to heal.  The mature saint is commissioned to heal and FATHER awaits those who are willing to embrace HIS Love in this area that HE may flow through them to minister to all mankind.  Consider, dwell, and meditate on the following passages.  Consider the needs of the people today and you will find that the need for healing is among the greatest.

Mat 10:1.7.8  

Matthew 10:1  And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.

7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.


Mark 3:13 And He went up on the mountain and called to Him those He Himself wanted. And they came to Him.

14 Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach,

15 and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons:


Mark 6:7 And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.

12 So they went out and preached that people should repent. 13 And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.


Mark 16:15  And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

16  He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

17  And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

18  they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”


Luke 9:1 Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.

2  He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

6  So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.


Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”


John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

John 15:7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.


Acts 1:“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”


Acts 3:6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”

7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God.

9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God


Acts 5:12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch.

13 Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly.

14 And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women,

15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.

16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.


Acts 28:. 8 And it happened that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and dysentery. Paul went in to him and prayed, and he laid his hands on him and healed him.

9 So when this was done, the rest of those on the island who had diseases also came and were healed.

Healing for All or Some?

Friday, December 18th, 2015

I believe that it is FATHER’S Divine Intent that we live in a healthy manner and HIS Word conveys that intent.  Yet just about everyone I know gets sick and some end up with chronic illnesses.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances and history that impacts our health and so there is no standard answer to why we become sick.  However there is a complete answer to healing and it is Christ Our Redeemer.  It is my goal to impart whatever revelation FATHER provides for the betterment of the reader.  I need to hear the same words I write so I end up being the first beneficiary of the blog.  Yes, I have been sick unto death but FATHER healed me of severe hepatitis in 1984.  The doctor and nurse thought I was going to die but in 11 days FATHER healed me completely.  HE had me immerse myself in HIS healing Scriptures and my body responded.  I didn’t feel like listening to tapes and reading HIS Word but it didn’t matter because the stakes were high.  If HE will heal me, HE will heal you as well.

Exodus 15:26  “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”

FATHER revealed HIMSELF as Jehovah Rapha on that day and shared one of HIS characteristics of Love.  Love is in the healing business, not placing sickness or disease on us.  In Psalm 105:37 FATHER is shown to not only provide financial resources to the children of Israel but also bring them out in Divine health:

“He also brought them out with silver and gold,
And there was none feeble among His tribes.”

It is not FATHER Who must be convinced that HE is in the healing and salvation business, it is you and me.  We have no problem in ministering salvation yet the ministry of healing seems to be difficult.  We must be reminded of HIS Promises to us and Psalm 103 is a good place to start:

1 Bless the LORD, O my soul; ​​And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

2 ​​Bless the LORD, O my soul, ​​And forget not all His benefits:

3 ​​Who forgives all your iniquities, ​​Who heals all your diseases,

4 ​​Who redeems your life from destruction, ​​Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

5 ​​Who satisfies your mouth with good things, ​​So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Verse 3 is a promise to you and me and we must fully embrace this promise.  Our mind and our body would try to convince us otherwise.  We must build up our spiritual man in the promises explicitly given to us by FATHER so that the mind and body will serve our spiritual man instead of controlling our outcome.  Psalm 103:3 plainly states that FATHER ministers salvation to the sinful and healing to those who are sick.  Traditions of men enslave, FATHER sets the captives free.

In Isaiah 53 we find that Jesus was to bare our sickness and disease on our behalf.  Jesus accepted the legal requirement to remove sickness and disease from our midst:

4 ​​Surely He has borne our griefs ​​And carried our sorrows;

​​Yet we esteemed Him stricken, ​​Smitten by God, and afflicted.

5 ​​But He was wounded for our transgressions, ​​He was bruised for our iniquities;

​​The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, ​​And by His stripes we are healed.

We need not bare sickness or disease.  Remember, HIS Will in HIS Word reveals HIS Intent.  FATHER intends for us to recover from sickness and disease and we should not settle for anything less.  If we will spend as much time and resources on health and healing as we do other things, we will see positive results in our lives.

How much time did Jesus spend healing the sick versus forgiving of sins?  Read and study the Gospels and you will find Jesus spent as much time healing people as He did ministering salvation.  He also instructed and commissioned the disciples (you and me) to do the same.

Faith for healing will come when you hear the Word and that is the point of this writing.  Your healing was authorized by Jesus receiving those stripes:

1 Pet 2:24  who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.

HE is willing to heal the sick, HE will heal the sick, HE will heal the sick now.  Do you think HE wants to wait until tomorrow to heal you rather than today?  Now is the time for us to be healed and to heal the sick. In 2 Corinthians chapter 6 Paul writes: 

2  For He says:
“In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

If you have no problem in believing you are saved, then you should have no doubt about FATHER’S willingness to heal you as well.  The reality of healing is no different than the reality of salvation. 

Now is the time to embrace healing and the ministry of healing for others.

HIS Word is HIS Promise

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Is your pain, symptom, or feeling greater than FATHER’S Divine Intent to heal every sickness and disease?  To which do you give authority?  Only the CREATOR of Heaven and earth has a sure Word with the necessary power backing it.  Men’s words and oaths are always subject to a higher authority.  Why place your trust in men when FATHER is accessible to those who will seek HIM?  HIS first begotten Son Jesus has had a greater impact on mankind than any other singular person in history.  The evidence is overwhelming yet many would question HIS Word in their unbelief.  In Ezekiel chapter 12, HE said:

25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.

28 Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.

We must not deny HIS Truth if we want HIS healing power to flow to us, in us, and through us.  Men would try to come up with various methods to heal but would only have partial success and some of their success could even fall under the category of faith by the recipient rather than effectiveness of the method itself.  Paul asks the question in 1 Corinthians chapter 1:

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

In 2 Corinthians chapter 1 Paul clearly states how FATHER’S promises are for our benefit:

20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

As we truly believe HIS Word and HIS promises, we align ourselves with HIM and open up vast possibilities and resources.  It is HIS will to heal us for HE never put sickness or disease on anyone.  Jesus went about healing ALL and only did as instructed by FATHER.  Our blindness and disobedience opens us up to sickness and disease.  Our ignorance and willingness to follow mankind’s traditions and potions have become a source of our distress.  Healing can become simple if we will only allow ourselves to seek FATHER and truly believe HIS Word toward us.  Jesus said in Mark chapter 9:

23  Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Jairus, one of the rulers of the synagogue, had a daughter who was severely ill.  He asked Jesus to go to his house and minister healing.  In the meantime, the daughter died.  In Mark chapter 5 we continue:

35 While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”

37 And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James.

38 Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly.

39 When He came in, He said to them, “Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping.”

Jesus had the power and authority over all sickness, disease, and even death.  He was fully committed to hearing FATHER’S Word and only responding in accordance to what He was instructed by FATHER.  There is an appointed time for a person to leave his or her physical body but that was not the case for Jairus’ daughter.

41 Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”

42 Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement.

As HIS Son or Daughter, the nature of FATHER dwells in you thus the power of FATHER is to flow in and through you.  We must no longer view ourselves as being subject to the world but only be subject to FATHER and HIS commands of Love.  It is HIS will to heal thus it should be our will to heal.  Do you look at people with compassion or disgust?  Are you fully of mercy or judgment?  Are you looking for opportunities to bless or exploit others?  What is internal will ultimately be manifested in the external.  We know what was internal to Jesus by looking at His fruit:

Matt 8:16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

1 Peter 2:24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Removing uncertainty requires that you know AND fully receive FATHER’S Word concerning the area of need.  You must become fully persuaded of HIS promise in a particular area such as healing and health.  Unbelief prevents the Word from being fully activated in your life.  Misuse of HIS Intent will keep HIS Word from being active as well.  When our intent aligns with FATHER’S Intent, good things happen.

FATHER’S promises are each a revelation of what HE is eager to do for us.  HIS Word is a seed that must be planted in you and you must let the “water” of the Word  provide nourishment for this seed to grow and produce fruit.  It may happen immediately or it may take time depending on the condition of the heart.

We know FATHER is able to heal but we must be convinced in our heart, soul, and body that HE is willing to heal.  This Truth is applicable in all areas.

If It Be Thy Will

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Only one time was Jesus asked whether it be FATHER’S Will to heal.  A leper who had the greatest and immediate need for healing happened to be that person for not only did he have a chronic and severe disease, he was also an outcast.  In the Good News of Mark chapter one:

40 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.”

41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.”

42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.

In Exodus chapter 15, FATHER makes a very clear statement:

26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have permitted upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

It is Our Loving FATHER Who does the healing.  After all, HE created and formed us thus HE has perfect knowledge of what it takes to heal and restore us.  The leper in Mark chapter 1 is a perfect example.  By FATHER’S authority and Divine Intent, Jesus healed the leper and there is no question that it is HIS will for all to be healed.

What is the problem if we are sick or plagued with a chronic disease?  I believe it is due to something we may be missing.  It could be that we are “void” of HIS Word in a certain area.  We might have allowed the cares of the world to creep in and the Word has grown dormant in us.  The world is busily bombarding us with alternatives to FATHER’s healing power.  You may have unforgiveness and/or bitterness toward someone that needs to be dealt with.  Your spiritual state can negatively impact your physiology.  Dr. Speckhart saw cancer clear up after the young woman forgave her grandmother of all the malicious words and acts over her.

FATHER was in the healing business as shown in Exodus 15.  HE kept over 3 million totally healthy in the wilderness yet we find this bold statement in Hebrews chapter 8:

6  But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

The New Covenant was and is better than the Old Covenant.  In Psalms 105 we find an example of how good the Old Covenant was concerning the children of Israel:

37  He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

People think that you need to die from a disease but I strongly disagree.  FATHER will take you out of this current state without sickness and disease if you truly believe in HIS healing power and willingness to heal you today.  Nothing is wrong with simply having your heart stop on the appointed day you are to depart.  My friend Bill Weaver was such a man and knew that FATHER was going to do something special on his 70th birthday.  He departed in his sleep quietly without any suffering for he was healthy.

We must align ourselves with FATHER and know HIS Word in the area of healing.  We must trust and act upon HIS Word and we should expect results in the same manner as Jesus, the disciples, and all those who have since grasped the revelation that HE still heals today and has not changed in any manner.  The Beloved Disciple in 1 John chapter 5 wrote:

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him

Are you sick, ask FATHER to heal you and thank HIM for HIS Love directed specifically to you in making you whole.  Dwell on your healing and tell your body you are healed as it tries to convince you otherwise.  It is HIS good pleasure to minister health, healing, and life to HIS sons and daughters.  There is no question that IT IS HIS WILL for you to be healed.  Stand on HIS Word and let HIS Word permeate every aspect of your being for it has more power than any sickness or disease.  It may take some time for this to occur but don’t give up.  I can attest to this process in my own life.

The Power to Heal

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

Proverbs 4:20 ​​My son, give attention to my words;

​​Incline your ear to my sayings.

21 ​​Do not let them depart from your eyes;

​​Keep them in the midst of your heart;

22 ​​For they are life to those who find them,

​​And health to all their flesh.

FATHER’s WORD contains the power within it for you to be healed of any sickness or disease.  It contains life for those who find it and believe.  Our FATHER wants us to walk in a healthy state and be not hindered by any malady that might prevent us from fulfilling our daily walk.  The pharmaceutical and medical profession would want us to believe otherwise.  They promote management of chronic ailments as the norm and promote a regimen of pharmaceuticals to maintain a “quality” of life.  Man’s thinking has been perverted from the Truth of the Gospel.  Paul wrote in Romans chapter 1:

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written,“The just shall live by faith.”

If FATHER’S Word has enough power to save and deliver us, it surely has enough power to heal our bodies as well but we must have faith in HIS Word.  As Paul wrote in the tenth chapter of Romans “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”  As we move our focus to those healing Scriptures, our faith will increase in the area of health and healing and ultimately our bodies will conform.

A double-minded man has a problem with faith and healing.  James points this out in his epistle, chapter 1:

6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;

8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

In general, the right side of the brain is oriented toward the Spiritual whereas the left side is where analysis and reasoning occur.  Your mind cannot grasp FATHER’S ability to heal, it just doesn’t make sense to it.  Instead it looks at all the data and information provided by external sources and concludes that we must get sick and rely solely on a white-coated doctor and pharmaceuticals to resolve the problem.  There are very few “healers” in the medical profession, most are “treaters”.

James makes it quite clear that the double-minded man will not receive ANYTHING from the LORD.  If you have trouble receiving, check you mind, your focus, and where you place your priorities and attention.  FATHER wants us healed!  This is one aspect of the Divine Intent of Love.  If FATHER says it, you can count on it as we are reminded in Numbers chapter 23:

19 ​​“God is not a man, that He should lie,

​​Nor a son of man, that He should repent.

​​Has He said, and will He not do?

​​Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

FATHER created us and HE has the power to restore our bodies to normal.  HE is also willing to restore us as well.  It will become increasing important in the days ahead to have faith in FATHER’S power, willingness, and Divine Intent.  The more we have HIS Word operational in us, the greater the results to be seen in our walk.  We will walk worthy unto THE LORD, increasing the HIS Knowledge being fruitful in every good work.  This should become our expectation as we are enveloped in HIS Truth.

On a Mission

Monday, December 14th, 2015

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 4:

18  “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to
the poor;
He has sent Me
to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to
the blind,
set at liberty those who are oppressed;

19  To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

Each of us has a calling just as Jesus had a calling.  This calling was established before we were formed in the womb and it was established by HIS Divine Intent of Love.  We should not look at others’ callings and desire theirs but instead we should seek to fully understand what our particular calling is in its fullness.  As we pursue our own calling we will be empowered by HIS anointing just as Jesus was.

Zacharias and Elizabeth are great examples, they were both “advanced” in age, beyond the normal childbearing years.  To top it off, Elizabeth was barren:

Luke 1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.

6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

7 But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.

Even though Zacharias was old, it did not keep him from continuing to pray for FATHER’S WILL to be done in his life as well as the life of his wife Elizabeth.  We must not let these subtle Truths be overlooked for they provide encouragement in our own circumstances.  We must be of good courage and know that FATHER will manifest our calling at the appropriate time no matter what situation we currently face.

13 But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.

14 And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth.

15 For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.

16 And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God.

17 He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

Notice how FATHER takes what appears to be an impossible situation and brings forth HIS Glory.  They are going to have a son and he will even be filled with the Holy Spirit while he is still in the womb.

We must not consider our individual circumstances, station in life, or age when it comes to our calling.  Our situation can change in a moment.  The next phone call you receive might alter your direction and place you in the middle of your calling along with the empowerment from Above.  In our humanity we often question whether FATHER could do something with us.  Zacharias had the same question many of us would at a later stage of life:

18 And Zacharias said to the angel, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.”

19 And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings.”

Gabriel was sent, John the Baptist was sent, Jesus was sent, and you too are sent.  The only question might be “What is my mission or calling?”  Zacharias prayed and FATHER heard him and sent Gabriel to give him details of his calling.  FATHER will communicate your calling in some form or fashion so you must be sensitive and focus on hearing HIS Voice.  Your prayer will be heard for it is HIS good pleasure to equip, prepare, train, and then send you on your mission whether you are 30 years old or 84 years old.  The Ancient of Days is not moved by your age or situation.
